The announcement comes on the heels of A Quiet Place Part II shifting to an undisclosed future date. Given the huge amounts of cash already spent on marketing the latest Fast movie (including a concert event to launch one of the trailers), this is a blow to Universal, but an understandable step given that the chaos of Vin Diesel's Dom Toretto and the rest plays big worldwide, a gamble that won't pay off in a world where cinemas are being closed.
"The Wolf Of Wall Street." The actors snorted crushed B vitamins for scenes that involved cocaine. Jonah Hill claimed that he eventually became sick with bronchitis after so much inhaling and had to be hospitalized.
Which means that, despite Vin Diesel shrugging off viral fears whilst out doing the press rounds for Bloodshot and claiming he'd still head to China to promote the new Fast film, he'll be staying put for now. The planned 10th Fast film had been scheduled for that April 2021 slot, and given that it's yet to be shot, expect it to likewise make a a move to 2022 – assuming cast and crew can convene in good time to shoot it.
"Amélie." Audrey Tautou doesn't know how to skip stones; the stone-skipping scenes were made with special effects.
"12 Years A Slave." In order to better portray an alcoholic, Michael Fassbender had his makeup artist paint his mustache with alcohol so that the other actors would react naturally to the smell, as they would to a man who had been drinking heavily.
